Father of William and George of same regiment 
Died in Warren, VT 

Born in Braintree, Vt., enlisted from Warren. His age is set at 45, 
but he was well preserved and it was hoped that he could do service. 
He was 5 ft. 9 in. in height, light complexion and blue eyes with hair 
already turning grey. After a few marches, however, he seemed to be 
breaking down and was detailed to assist in the regimental hospital, 
but even that proved too much for him and he was sent to general hospital 
January 6, and was discharged for disability January 31st. He returned to 
Warren where he died.


George J. Trask

Mustered Out at Brattleboro, VT on 21 July 1863 
Last Reported Residence at East Warren, VT
Died on 21 March 1918
Son of Horace Trask of same regiment.  
 
Son of Horace, enlisted from Warren, born in that town. Both his age and that 
of his brother William are set at 18 years, but we are sure that they were not 
twins. George the younger one was rather heavier than his brother, but was 
half an inch shorter. He endured army life well increasing in height, and in 
weight till that last march. Since the war he has in creased his stature in 
height and breadth so that he could scarcely be recognized as the slight boy 
who enlisted in Company B, in '62. For many years he was in business in Lynn, Mass., 
but a few years ago returned in broken health to his old home in East Warren, Vt.

Son of Horace Trask of same regiment. Buried in Lynn, MA  

Son of Horace, enlisted from Warren. Age set at 18 years. He was 5 ft. 8 in. 
in height, but slim and immature and yet it was such boys as these who often 
showed great endurance and made the best soldiers, and comrade Trask was no 
exception to the rule. He came home all right. For many years he has been 
engaged in business in Lynn, Mass.
